The inclusion comes as a result of the publications annual survey which ranks 150 elite lawyers (100 of whom are from Chinese law firms and 50 of whom are from foreign law firms) involved in China business.
CBLJ received over 1,000 recommendations from corporate legal counsel, senior officers and legal colleagues which was combined with the editorial team’s years of collective experience in documenting and analysing China’s legal market to produce the final list.
The recommendations aim to celebrate a select group of outstanding Chinese lawyers which show deep legal knowledge, extensive practical experience, shrewd business thinking, an internationalized vision, effective team co-operation abilities, and a spirit of professional dedication that places their clients first.
Hong Kong co-Managing Partner, Cameron Adderley, commented “This acknowledgment follows Judy’s recent award win for the second time at the Asia Women Business Law Awards and I am pleased to see Judy’s extensive expertise in the Chinese legal market recognised. Appleby is one of the most well established offshore law firms in Hong Kong, and China continues to be an integral market serviced by our multi lingual team of lawyers.”
